Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Is it worth it to hire a roofer?

There are several reasons why it’s worth it to hire a professional roofer instead of attempting it yourself. The first is safety. Roofing is inherently dangerous, as a fall from a roof could seriously injure or kill you. Roofers have specialized equipment and training to help prevent accidents.  

Next is experience. Roofers know how to spot problems (leaks, missing shingles, moss or mold growth, etc.)  in your roof that could potentially save you from costly repairs down the road. 

And finally, roofers save you time by getting the job done quickly and with a high degree of quality.

How do you know when you need a new roof?

Some of the signs that indicate you need a new roof include cupping, warping and peeling asphalt shingles, as well as cracks on certain shingles. Other warning signs may include:

  • Leakage
  • Exposed nails 
  • Missing granules
  • Droopy, sagging roof
  • Moss, mold or fungi growth 

A metal roof may need to be replaced when it grows rusty and begins leaking. Tile roofs made of clay, slate or concrete need repairs when cracked. Cleaning and inspecting the roof regularly can help prevent major damage from occurring. 

Contact the best roofers near you to inspect, repair or replace your roof.

Do you tip roofers?

It’s not customary or required to tip roofers. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t tip, but it is generally not expected. If you do decide to tip, you can give the tip to the foreman or distribute it yourself. 

Another idea to show your appreciation is to surprise the crew with coffee, water, snacks, breakfast or lunch when they arrive at the worksite. 

How do I choose the best roofing contractor?

Choosing a roofer starts by reading reviews online. Compare customer ratings of roofing contractors and companies to identify pros with a good track record of craftsmanship and customer relations. Some reviews may also have photos of completed roofing jobs.

Many states require a license for someone to do roofing work, so make sure the companies you’re considered are licensed. Also, look for contractors and companies with several years of experience. 

Before you make your final choice, contact several roofers near you to get free estimates and quotes. Ultimately, choose the roofer that will do high-quality work for a reasonable price. 

What is the best roofing material?

The best roofing material for your home will depend on your budget and what you’re looking for. If you want a roof that has longevity, consider the following: 

Asphalt Roof

Lasts 20 years

$5 per square foot

Metal Roof

Last 50 years

$10-$18 per square foot 

Clay Roof

Last a lifetime

$15-$20 per square foot (for terracotta)

$20 per square foot (for Spanish clay tile)

Concrete Roof

Last a lifetime

$10 per square foot

Slate Roof

Last a lifetime

$10-$75 per square foot

Does homeowners insurance cover roof replacement?

Homeowners insurance generally covers roof replacement if the roof is damaged by a natural disaster or a sudden accident, according to Investopedia. However, insurance companies often won’t cover roof replacement costs if the roof is older than 20 years. Read your insurance policy to find out what types of roof repairs or damages are covered.

How long does a roof last?

A roof’s lifespan depends on two major factors: the material and how well the roof was installed. Assuming that the roof is installed properly, here’s how long different roofing materials should last:

  • Asphalt shingle roof: 20 years
  • Metal roof: 50 years
  • Slate roof: 100+ years (lifetime)
  • Clay roof: Lifetime
  • Concrete roof: Lifetime
  • Copper roof: Lifetime

Does a roofer need to enter my home?

Generally, a roofer will likely not need to enter your home. The bulk of the work takes place on and around the edges of the roof, where roofing material meets either dormer walls or other structures. So, there is usually no need for person-to-person contact. However, there might be some cases where a roofer needs to enter your home, perhaps to inspect damage or access electrical outlets.

You can take care of any consultation calls using video chats, photos and emails, and payment should take place on virtual platforms. Put together a strategy with any local roofing professionals you contact.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a roofer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Because social distancing is important during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s recommended that you message roofers after narrowing down your choices through an online search of local roofers near you.

Ask if the roofer is willing to conduct an assessment via video chat rather than a traditional site inspection. Additionally, strategize on what other steps you can collectively take to make sure you’re following guidelines on social distancing during this time, including conducting a virtual payment.

How can I find out if a roofer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a roofer is an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by visiting your state or city’s government website. Local governments are providing up-to-date information for residents during this time.

A national guideline is available on CISA’s website, Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page addresses 16 different categories of essential infrastructure sectors, but note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Once I submitted the job I needed on Thumbtack, I was promptly contacted by Harriford Exterior Restoration. Brandon came out the same day and actually arrived a few minutes early to the appointment time we set. He was professional, extremely knowledgeable of roofing, courteous and very thorough. He took his time assessing the damage and did a great job putting a tarp on my roof to avoid further damage, until he can replace the roof. I would recommend his business to anyone!

These guys are top notch, really I can't say enough about how great they are. They arrived bright and early, had the roof removed from my home by 9am and quickly were installing the new roof. They did a phenomenal job, on this 90+ degree day, it looks fabulous, cleaned up fantastic. Everyone on the crew was super nice and courteous, and the owner Jon was here several times throughout the day to make sure everything was in order. I highly recommend JNVIS. I met with so many roofing contractors before selecting JNVIS and I am glad we did. I will definitely use them in the future if I have a need. (I have no idea why my photos are upside down lol but I attached some pictures of my gorgeous new roof)

Jon and his team at Jnvis did an outstanding job with my new roof. Eight days between estimate and installed roof. All appointments exactly on time. High quality materials and workmanship. Good cleanup. And the cost was thousands less than another quote. I liked helping a Veteran and small-business owner. You simply cannot go wrong with Jon and Jnvis.

Do to recent weather conditions, a number of tiles loosened on roof. We hired Quality Roofing and Siding after speaking with Brian. Brian made the process simple including payment. We got for estimate including. We hired his company to do the work because, they were the best value for what we needed done. They arrived within the window of agreed-upon span of time. They went straight to work, and the repairs were done in no time. While doing the repairs they noticed some minor issues that overtime, could become major issues and they took the time to correct those as an added value to us. We highly recommend Quality Roofing.

They did an efficient job roofing our shed. And they also painted it. The only ding I have is that they didn’t knock the loose old paint off the shed before they painted it

I needed time-sensitive repair work on my roof. Drew Taylor and his partner Cesar came the same day and performed the work on the spot. Not only that, while they were on the roof, they addressed some other small issues at no extra cost and provided photographs of all the work done. They did all if it at a very fair price and I couldn't be happier. I'll definitely call on them again for future projects. Highly recommended!

I am selling my home and was in a time crunch for getting repairs done to my roof. After i set up my Thumbtack request, I had the pleasure of working with Brandon. He was able to fix a previous contractor's shotty work along with blown off shingles on the spot, the day of the evaluation. His prices are fair and more affordable in comparison to the other companies in the area. He doesn't try to up-sell or convince you of more than you need, he educates, sets expectations to be met, and gets to work. I'm so confident in his work my whole roof could fly off in a category 10 hurricane and the areas Brandon repaired will still be the only thing left standing. :-) Brandon is an overall a good guy to work with and hard worker. I will *** HIGHLY RECOMMEND*** Brandon to my friends, family and anyone who needs help with their roof.
